KOLKATA (PTI): To strengthen the operational capability of the Indian Air Force in the region, a new C-130J squadron complex was inaugurated by Marshal of the Indian Air Force Arjan Singh at Panagarh in Burdwan district of West Bengal on Tuesday.

This will be the second C-130 squadron of the IAF after Hindan which will house a squadron of the Super Hercules aircraft.

Once equipped with the aircraft, the squadron complex in the "Air Force Station Arjan Singh", named after the 97-year-old Marshal of the IAF Arjan Singh, would be capable of undertaking all types of air transport missions in this sector, a defence press release said.

Air Officer Commanding in Chief of Eastern Air Command, Air Marshal Anil Khosla said that Panagarh would become one of the most important air bases in the region following the arrival of the C-130 squadron.

"Air Force Station Arjan Singh" is the only air base in the Indian Air Force named after the Marshal of the IAF, a living legend.
